This unit will explore issues of food security and sustainable rural livelihoods, encompassing relevant aspects of sustainable development, environmental and resource management and conservation, and agricultural/rural production systems. Linkages between social, environmental and economic influences on development will be explored, alongside critical review of debates on population, resource scarcity, poverty, and equality. Theoretical debate will be used to inform an analysis of policy and programme responses. Contemporary case studies from Africa, Asia, and Central America will be used to highlight regional and national issues and hotspots, and assess both immediate responses and longer term development intervention options.
Proposed topics covered include:
Two assignments, of not more than 5000 words: first assignment consists of short answer topics 40%, and the second assignment an essay on a specified topic 60%
